Fantastic Friday workchat 8/11/17

If you're counting on me to start these everyday you're going to be much disappoint. Today I started it because someone stirred the Rakes pot on FB and I thought it was getting good.

"The Official CobaltSS.net Gang"

Which is funny because nearly all of the people on there aren't here. And even if they were, why go to FB? Oh internets.

I literally have facebook strictly for Cobalt stuff. I have three friends on there that I added so I could message about buying stuff. There is no information or pictures or anything on my profile. It is handy for seeing what people are selling and I use it to communicate with my tuner but I agree that facebook the way you are supposed to use it is crappy and creepy.

I have no reason to comment so I won't in there.

I admit my only "experience" with him is via css.net and occasional posts like this in FB, however what little I see in there is someone asks who to tune them, ppl say Rakes is da best, then others may or may not chime in, then he comes in and says the naysayers are idiots and I'm the best look how awesome I am. People are tagging Kevin over and over but he's classy and isn't going to get involved. Huge credit to him.

Surely he can't be that terrible (as a tuner) if that many people still support him. Obviously his character is questionable just by those responses of his.

I like Rakes. I'm not sure about his abilities nor do I care (I do my own tuning) but he was super helpful with the whole clutch fiasco of mine.

Either way, I'm neutral

I have no idea how "good" his tunes are, but there's definitely an attitude on FB that turns me off (not that I'd look for a tuner anyways). I get the feeling that he's the type where if you question something or even ask for an explanation of something the wrong way he'll act like a child about it.

Personally. Don't have anything against James. I wouldn't let him tune my car though. I wish he could act with integrity more being a business owner, but he seems to take care of his guys pretty well. Sadly most think the suns rises in his ass. I have a local that was tuned by him and was never really happy with the part throttle performance. He had kevin redo the tune and loved how much better the car ran. If Jon mic ever got out of tuning I would probably go with kevin. Especially since term has moved on. He was the one who recommended John to me and he has done great.

The PO of my car tried to get rakes to tune the ko4+, over 14 revisions and the car ran like ****. Took Term 3 or 4 to get the car damn near perfect. I'm tuning a local that bought a lnf Rakes had tuned, not sure when this was tuned by him but there was definitely some crazy things going on that I wouldn't like in a performance car. Had another local that had an e85 tune from him, at literally quarter throttle it would make 26psi on a ko4 (24psi for you sea level lovers).

I was tuned by him when I first got my car. Didn't know much about tuning at the time or anything and my buddy and I went to James for help. Thought hey this guy is good. Got a tune from him and by no means did I beat the living **** out of my car. About 5-7k miles later I was hopping on the highway and I was in 3rd, gave the car part throttle and boom there went 3rd lol. So I was like well **** happens. Got the car back and that's when I heard about term so I sent him the tune James gave me and told him about my trans blowing before 30k miles. So he looks at the tune and I told him James tuned it and he knew right then and there what the problem was lol. Too much timing down low and part throttle. A bunch of other adjustments were also made. So I thank term for helping my buddy and I out in the beginning!! Now the car has 90k on the trans and clutch with 0 issues!! So yeah I can't stand his attitude or tuning lol

You can't say that stuff on cobalt gang without someone going ballistic defending him.
